The farm we are trying to get has 3 orchards on it. We are planning on ripping out 2 of them for horse pasture. The best location for the barn and main pasture has the older fruit trees, and I feel bad killing them. Would it be bad to leave a few in the pasture? I don't know what type of trees they are yet, I guess I need to get someone out from a nursery to tell me. Of course the horses come first, so if they are bad i'll have them all ripped out. The farm my parents kept their horses at had a pear tree in the pasture and my old gelding loved eating those pears, and he never coliced or anything. Has anyone had experience with this?
